Far Yeast Brewing (Head Office: Kosuge-mura, Yamanashi Prefecture; Managing Director: Shiro Yamada; hereinafter referred to as “Far Yeast”), offering a wide variety of original beers from Japan to the world, has collaborated with BIRA 91, an Indian brewery. Far Yeast brewed “Pink Salt & Yuzu Gose” at its Tokyo Brewery in Gotanda, Tokyo. The beer will be available from Saturday, May 28, 2022 exclusively at Far Yeast Tokyo Brewery & Grill, a directly managed restaurant equipped with the brewery.
■To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and India, a cultural exchange was held with recipes using specialties from each country: “Yuzu” and “Himalayan Pink Salt”.
In 2022, Japan and India will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. In this milestone year, we collaborated with BIRA 91, an Indian brewery to create “Pink Salt & Yuzu Gose”, a gose made with Japanese yuzu and Indian Himalayan pink salt. Gose is typically a sour and salty beer style brewed via lactic acid fermentation with the additions of salt and coriander.
This time, Far Yeast Brewing’s Tokyo brewery and BIRA 91’s Bangalore brewery will brew the same recipe of Gose at the same time. In addition, the chefs of both restaurants will exchange their own pairing menus, which will be served at their own restaurants. This will be an exchange program to introduce the culture and breweries of each other’s country. This is our first time collaborating with an Indian brewery and vice versa, the first time for BIRA 91 to collaborate with a Japanese brewery.
This collaboration is recognized by the Secretariat of the Japan-India Diplomatic Relations 70th Anniversary Executive Committee (Embassy of Japan in India) as part of the Japan-India Diplomatic Relations 70th Anniversary Program.
■Gose style, the first challenge for Tokyo Brewery
From Japan, we used Yuzu, which is used in our regular beer KAGUA, and from India, we incorporated Himalayan pink salt, a representative Indian rock salt, into the recipe. Using ingredients representative of both countries, we have created a refreshing Gose perfect for early summer with its aroma of yuzu and juicy, pleasant acidity.
Far Yeast Tokyo Brewery & Grill will offer this “Pink Salt & Yuzu Gose” along with a pairing menu created by the chefs at BIRA 91’s taproom for a limited time, from Saturday, May 28 to Friday, June 3. In addition, BIRA 91’s taproom in Bangalore will serve “Yuzu and Black Shichimi Fried Chicken” using yuzu, which will also be a regular menu item at Far Yeast Tokyo Brewery & Grill.
